ST. LOUIS’ EQUITY IN ENTREPRENEURSHIP COLLECTIVE SUMMIT

On November 30, 2017, more than 150 members of St. Louis’ entrepreneurship ecosystem gathered for the first-ever regional summit on race and gender equity in early-stage entrepreneurship.  Entrepreneurs, support organizations, funders and investors imagined and committed to actions that build race and gender equity into St. Louis’ existing entrepreneur ecosystem.  The summit featured an Equity Primer delivered by Nicole Hudson, Deputy Mayor for Racial Equity and Strategic Initiatives, a panel of investors, entrepreneurs and ecosystem leaders, as well as solution-building work session that identified strategies that are launching a year of action in 2018.  For additional information, please click any of the links below:
